Subdivisions under science include arithmetic, botany/natural history, geology, science/natural philosophy, astronomy, chemistry, and mathematics. Entries consist of the author, title, publisher, city and state of publisher, date of publication when available (most are in the 19th and early 20th centuries), and number of volumes or pages. The online version has exhibits on students, architecture, teachers, and a day at school. (TD)
